Visitors from Hukarere and Te Aute College

This week we have been lucky enough to have both Hukarere and Te Aute Colleges visit Huia Range School. I especially enjoyed seeing Iritana Edwards an ex pupil of Huia Range. Hukarere performed waiata for us. Te Aute College boys performed both waiata and their haka. The children enjoyed these visits.

On Monday May 21st Tuakana Syndicate competed in Huia Range School's annual cross country.

The results were Riley Room 9 1st, Breanna 2nd, Kezia 3rd, Katie 4th, Brittney 5th. In the boys race 1st Carlos Room 9, 2nd Tama, 3rd was Elijah Room 5 and Jared was 6th.

We are studying shape

2D and 3D Shapes

Shapes are everywhere in the real world, many structures both natural and man-made comprise sets of 2D and 3D shapes. Take a look around and recognise how many cuboids, spheres, pyramids, prisms there are in the objects you see, touch and use everyday.
